Today, I just want to voice my opinion on a subject. I'll get right to it...
I whole heartedly do not like this new wave of reality television shows that seem to be the new fad. That's the basis of this whole blog post.
I don't like how it has become cool to go on television and make a fool of yourself all in the name of entertainment "...but you getting paid doe." Yes, fame and notoriety exists but if you haven't done your research or just noticed in general, it's all short lived.
What happened to the game shows that tested your IQ, your smarts, your physical endurance, your survival skills, or even your deductive reasoning skills? What happened to reality television that actually was based around people living together harmoniously? What happened to the shows highlighting how people from different walks of life could mesh well and live together? What happened to the reality shows that mixed those two concepts a la the show Survivor.
Nowadays it's real housewives of *insert city here* and love and hip-hop this or that. Oh and let's not forget the bad girls club. I think that show might be in the running for most bull sh** content. That show really does annoy me, to the extent that I stopped all involvement with a young lady before mainly because she was thoroughly entertained by the show and when I tried to reason with her, not even to change her mind but to see my point of view, she couldn't fathom how that show could be the least bit repulsive. Suffice that was the straw that broke the camels back as far as us two were concerned.
I digress though. These shows at their core actually don't have bad premises if you ask me. They actually make sense, but the execution is supremely awful. I would go into detail as to how horrible this is and how much I really don't like them but I think I would be overcome with how upset I become and won't be able to properly convey my true feelings in a way that you all would understand.
However, in my countless hours exploring the internet I came across an article that details all the shortcomings of said shows and how they are to the detriment of our society. Click HERE for the link to the article.
Feel free to disagree and let me know about your dissent of my point of view but please be sure to have a good argument for you being in favor or such foolery.
Until next time. Stay enlightened.
